Visit to Burton Art Gallery to learn about ceramics and making pots using clay

We learned about the five Bideford potteries, the history of North Devon slipware, the RJ Lloyd Collection and the history of trading with America.
We studied the famous Harvest Jugs which each tell a local story. These are similar to the Greek Vases that we will be studing as part of our Great Minds/ Creators topic.

Music - working with a musician, a local Great Mind, to write our own songs about scientists Einstein and Edison.

Mr Grimshire worked with our class to write verses and a chorus to make a song about Great Minds Edison and Einstein.  We used our knowledge of the famous scientists to come up with some great lines to make poems.  Mr Grimshire played his guitar and we sang the whole song. It was great fun! We are looking forward to our hearing our song again after Mr Grimshire has made a professional recording in his music studio!
